Oracle card reading 22nd – 28th April 2019

Mon 22nd – Tue 23rd: Knowledge

Ok so for me this is all about your own knowledge/knowledge of self and a sense of remembering.

It’s important right now to dig deep into your own energy, to root out what no longer serves and move it on. To make space for new or “remembered” information to come in/return. To help clear your ancestral lines of crap they don’t need or have been held onto and passed down the generations.

They serve no function so send them on their way, you’ll feel the benefit.

This is also a nod regarding seeking knowledge internally not always externally. We have all been there where we look to others to tell us what we need to know.

Understand that they are simply giving you confirmation of things you ALREADY know at some level. I am one to talk in all honesty as I have a small number of people who I will go to if I need a bit of clarity if I’m just too close to something and am self blinkering.

Anything you seek can be found within if you take the time to listen. But heed what you get shown.

For some others this may be a nudge/ outright push to get your voice out there in some capacity (laughing as I type this as I know this one only too well). You have a message/work/information to be heard. And it can’t be heard if you keep it to yourself infinitum now can it.

Be bold, try something new – write if the written word is your friend, use spoken word if your voice is waking up, paint, draw, create……there are n limits as to how your message. your work can be spread to more.

Wed 24th – Thur 25th : Miss Spider Web

Now isn’t this interesting that we repeat part of the message for the last week. We had the spider and web reference and it looks as if we have the opportunity to revisit this one.

To look deep into the connections we have with others – be it family, friends, colleagues, social media connections…they all count.

these connections, this web you have built over time may warrant some sense checking to see if it’s all still intact.

Are there threads that have broken, frayed, have a bit of damage in some way? Would they benefit from being dissolved, repaired or even rebuilt from scratch?

Only you can truly answer that and your gut will confirm where to look and what action to take – but again you have free will. So if you decide not to act I’m sure it’ll be revisited in some form when you are ready.

It may be as simple as leaving social media groups, unliking pages, unfollowing people, unsubscribing to emails, closing groups or pages ……if it comes up for you then you’re possibly supposed to be looking into it. You may even find yourself taking a technology break and completely stepping back for a bit.

Or the reverse you may find you are expanding your web and adding a new pattern. With new ages, new people, starting groups, creating web pages (and no thats NOT a random comment) you may find when you make space whats coming in appears very quickly.

Coming back to free will – you have a choice who to have in your life. Yes truly. If the relationship isn’t working do you want o repair it or would it be easier and cleaner to step away and allow it to reach the end of its cycle?

Big stuff to ponder – but if you can take action as well.

Fri 26th – Sun 28th : Integrity

Love this. What does integrity mean to you?

To me it means doing what I say and saying what I do. There are no masks. What you see is truly what you get.

I know bone deep where my integrity sits and how it manifests. But it took a hell of a lot of work. And if folk don’t believe I’m at the point I can shrug my shoulders and move on. It’s not my issue at this time.

Finding your path and adjusting as it weaves and changes direction can make this sense go deeper and make you stronger than you ever realised.

Try not to let others opinions or expectations drag you down or shift the direction that in your gut feels right for you. Their opinion is just that – theirs. They are not living your life – you are. So own it.

If you are finding yourself coming up against someone who, to you, is out of alignment with their own integrity. It can be like touching an electric fence Ask why you have this person in your life, what role are they fulfilling and what can you change to allow them to either move on or facilitate a shift to match your own frequency.

When you work and live from your own integrity your ability to be shaken at foundation level diminishes.

Dig deep folk and if you find something within yourself thats out of frequency or alignment face it head on. Deal with it. Bring yourself back into alignment and move on.

Remember sometimes its our own crap we have to deal with.

Summary:

Start of the week: you may have an opportunity to look deep into your own energy and find/rediscover knowledge about yourself. This is big stuff folks so if it presents itself pay it heed. Acknowledge it. If it’s something you aren’t happy with or feels out of balance do the needful and let it go. Make space for new/forgotten things to step forwards to take their place. Do the big personal/ancestral work when it pops up as trust me you’ll feel the benefit later.

For some it may be a push to get your message out there – scary stiff on paper but easier when you actually make a start.

Mid week – another chance to look at the connections you have with others. To work out what’s working and what isn’t. You have choices to make to either repair any damage or rip out the thread and start again, or create a new pattern. If social media feels too much take a break for a bit.
Conversely some may find this a time of making new connections, finding new people and opportunities that just feel right. Go with what at a gut level makes you happy.

End of the week – really start living and working with your own integrity. Wearing masks can be exhausting and downright confusing. Cast them aside and just be yourself. If others have an opinion of you let them – its theirs not yours. Keep doing what makes you well, YOU. Standing firmly in who you are at this given moment gives you stability and strength you may never have suspected you had.

Oracle card reading 15th – 21st April 2019

Mon 15th – Tue 16th : Chumara – web of all life

This is always a fascinating card to pop up as it’s, for me, a reminder to really check in with the people you are connected to. Be it friends, family, work, social media contacts etc – it’s all important.

Have a good sense check around things and determine if it’s time:
To let some folk go,
Rebuild relationships if a bit wobbly if worth the effort,
See what’s truly going on and if one sided it may be time to step back,
To see the ones that make you truly happy

There’s no end to the list and you’ll go instinctively to the ones that require your attention.

In my own life Im being shown a couple of one-way connections (not in my favour) that really aren’t right for me at this time. And that’s ok I may be a one-sided relationship that others feel its time to step back from.

This is the trick. NOT take it personally when you stop hearing from someone. They have their own stuff going on as do you. That mutual understanding can go a long way.Perhaps they are giving you space to face your own stuff as they can see it playing out.

You weave your own web but you also have the choice to redo bits, or rip them out and create a new pattern if it just doesn’t flow or feel right.

We are all interconnected at any rate but you decide who you bring in the closest at any given time.

This can also be a marker to put yourself out there a bit more – of showing who you really are behind the mask you may have popped on over time. By being yourself , and giving yourself permission to do so, you may start to find yourself. To find the people who accept you for who you are not who you were.

Build that connection but use your discernment.

Wed 17th – Thur 18th : Witch at the end of the world – an important end, and a new beginning

Looking at the imagery of the card I’m struck by the elemental power of the lightning – what you have the possibility to harness and work with if you believe in yourself.

But also the sand timer I can see the infinity loop, the figure of eight …and the sand on both sides in very much in balance.

So this card for me is about the natural order of things. The life and death cycle of energies, situations etc. Of knowing that things change even if we don’t wish them to. This is also Phoenix energies which have been oh so strong for some time now.

For some it may be the ending of something – a relationship, a job, a long held belief, and aspect of self. It’s time for it to move on as it’s come to completion. Be brave and let it go. Grasping onto it will only cause you harm in time, or bring up deep resentment and anger. By releasing it you open up space for the newness to come in – you may be surprised the form it takes but it will make sense when you take time to look back.

It may play out in the bigger collective group but again it’s as it should be. Balance will be maintained.

Fri 19th – Sun 21st: Poe’s brave flight – don’t let fear stop you

Ok so this card has popped up a few times in recent readings which tells me either it needs to be repeated loudly for those in the back, or things are changing at such a rapid rate that it bears repeating.

So for the former:
If you have something that keeps coming up that you’d really like to do instead of talking yourself out of it have you considered giving it a go instead?

What’s really truthfully holding you back? Is it your fear of failure or conversely success? Is it someone else’s fears on your behalf which are in truth their own fears projected onto you? Will you regret not doing it if you look back on your life later?

Only you can truly answer the question so try this – if you imagine not doing it how do you feel. If you imagine doing it how do you feel.
Your gut will steer you on this.

For the latter:
The energies just now are still moving about a million miles an hour and your path can flit about all over the place. Go with it where you can.

What feels right at this point in time is the best you can work with for the time being. It may change in the blink of an eye so if you want to do something you feel is right then go for it. If it doesn’t feel right then don’t. The old adage of feel the fear and do it anyway may get you through.

You have free will in this life so use it wisely.

Summary:

Start of the week – it may be time to either sense check some of your connections to other people. To deep dive and feel if they still feel right. If they don’t can you rebuild or is it better to let go? You’ll know on a deep level whats working and what isn’t. For some it may be a time to step outside of the mask you wear and show people the true you. Don’t panic you have people, or will very shortly, who will support you and accept you as you are. This also goes for self acceptance folks. Don’t forget that important facet.

Mid week : all things have their time. So if you find yourself at and ending of some sort allow it to go. Holding onto it once it’s completed will only hurt you in the end. By letting go you work wit the Phoenix energy in the death and rebirth cycle to let something new and shiny come in instead. Embrace the change, the new start, the new chapter. It’s as it should be.

End of the week: if you really want to do something that you’ve put off time and time again flip things on their head and give it a go. What’s the worst that could happen? That it fails? At least you won’t have regrets for not trying.
But let me be clear you have free will – don’t do something because I’ve said so. Do it because you have a pull or a drive to do it. Discernment is key.

Oracle card reading 8th – 14th April 2019

 

Mon 8th – Tue 9th : Surfacing

Ok the whole challenge of stepping into who you are is set to continue.

This is very much about stepping up in public in some way – of being seen and heard and your message carried forwards even if the idea scares the beejesus out of you. Be it a form of public speaking, writing something that gets seen, a live video/webinar. It’s time to put yourself out there.

You have so much more going on that people see at surface level and this is all starting to push its way to the surface….like a bubbling pan of water. All these ideas, the knowledge etc has to go somewhere or they fizzle out.

You might not wish to put yourself forwards but you may find you have no choice – I have to say suck it up and get going. It will never be as bad as you imagine. Indeed your imagination and fear will try and make you run away and feel safe and small. Nuh uh – not in these energies . You will be made to put yourself, how you work, your ideas etc front and centre.

By pushing way, way, waaaaaay past your current comfort zones you may be shocked and enjoy parts of it more than you would have expected. I mean look at all the colour, the movement and the joy of the card itself. That’s you – no-one else.

So carrying on from last week feel the fear and do it anyway.

Wed 10th – Thur 11th : Lantern Fairy – A clear solution

The light at the end of the tunnel – or at least a guiding light away from the never-ending tunnel. An escape hatch if you will.

After putting yourself out there it’s very easy to go into startled bunny mode – but you don’t have to, unless you want to. What comes up may be the possibility of clarity around what you have said, seen, believed. Or seeing in extreme detail what is actually going on around you in some way.

When you have a brick wall in front of you there are several options of scaling it, blasting through it or even stopping. But have you considered taking a walk down the wall a bit further and seeing if a few of the bricks are already loose or have fallen out – giving you just enough room to get through?

Things are never quite what they seem on the surface – so look for the light in every situation. It may involve a slight change in perception or perspective but when you are open to changes and shifts you’ll find them.

If you go with the flow and show you can bend and flex rather than stay stuck and rigid you are given more opportunities. To show you CAN do this and be creative when the need is there.

Being seen and heard is not a scary thing – it’s just a thing. Try and not let fears (yours or others) get in the way of what you are here to do. Get creative, see things for what they are and keep going.

Fri 12th – Sun 14th : Change of mind

See there’s always the possibility that you can change any long held beliefs, vibrations or energies. As you shift and change you can drop things that no longer serve. You don’t have to carry them with you. You can instead create space for what’s coming in to replace them.

See the wings in the card?
This change in yourself can give you wings to do more, see more, travel more, BE more.

If you have things coming up about yourself that feel out of sync, you don’t particularly like or are an old echo…you can let them go. Acknowledge them, trace them back, forgive and simply let go.

You may find that some things you spent time and money learning are also now excess to requirements (I have a couple myself that I truly believe have served their time and are moving on) . It doesn’t mean it was a waste of time. On the contrary – it allowed you to open up, to see a bigger picture and expand your horizons. They have now expanded past the boundaries of that modality, that knowledge, that training. And to let them go allows you to open up to more again. Its the expansion and contraction cycle – flow with it and you start to see a pattern.

Remember that change is the only constant in life.
And by being open to change you prevent any self sabotage or self containment

Summary:

Start of the week – if you are presented with an opportunity to put your voice, views or knowledge out there in a public forum be brave and give it a go. We are being asked to step up and walk our talk. It may give you are real “oh shit!” moment but trust yourself. Sit in your own energies and let what you have just under the surface come up – it’ll guide you beautifully.

Mid week – you may be given very clear insight int o whats going on around you – both for yourself and from others. If you feel you’ve hit a brick wall you may be given a nudge towards a weak part in the structure thats big enough for you to squeeze through. Don’t give up a fresh pair of eyes may be all thats needed.

End of the week – let go of out dated beliefs, thoughts and vibrations. Create space for the newness coming in. Just because you used to be a certain way or a certain person doesn’t mean you have to carry that around with you. Give yourself permission to be who you are NOW. Open yourself up to MORE.

Oracle card reading for 1st – 7th April 2019

 

Mon 1st – Tue 2nd : Queen Mab

Interesting card this as the other writing in the card say ” your ancient wisdom is awakening”. Now this strikes a cord as it goes hand in hand with the work thats been going on since last December (if not slightly before).

Many people, not just myself, are really delving into the ancestral clean up/time line clean up process. To remove the story, the programming, the drama and all other distractions to get back to the kernel of truth we all have at the centre of ourselves.

It may be hidden as a form of self preservation, hidden by other to keep us of our path or possibly even buried as we’ve taken a glimpse and felt it to be too much.

Well. I hate to have to tell you this but it’s time to uncover the core of who we are.

To realise and remember the knowledge we hold. The keys and codes we carry in our energy field. The work we are being asked or guided to do.

They are unique to you – and to remember/uncover the truth is all part of self empowerment and self sovereignty (which in truth is the term my own team are using again and again). To stand in your own truth, be your own person and to hell with other peoples ideas or beliefs about who or what YOU should be.

Let the layers peel away and reveal your truth to you. Even if slightly unpalatable it can be worked with or through. See where you can take yourself by stripping all the crap away and getting to the honest, bare bones of it all.

Back to basics.

Wed 3rd – Thur 4th – Renewal

I love this card and it does pop up on a semi-regular basis. For me it reminds me that life is a spiral not a straight line.

I also see a fern unfurling in the image which reminds me of the cycle of renewal, of new life, new ideas, moving forwards.

Some of you may feel an urge for some deep self care this week and I’d advise you to go with it if you are able. This is the short rest after a time of deep integration/shifts/work that allows to to come back into balance. To regain your equilibrium.

Those, like myself, who have been anchoring and releasing for the collective in the last while (especially the last 48 hours) may need a moment of peace. Some time spent on self to acknowledge what has changed. The deep breathe before the next stage/shift/wave – so to speak.

Do not take anyones words personally during this time. It’s very easy to hear or read something and feel judgement being pointed in your direction. Ask yourself before you jump in – is it really a pot shot at you? Is that person perhaps going through their own stuff and projecting? Are you projecting your crap after holding space?

It’s easy to lash out , not so easy to clean up afterwards.
Just pause before you reply/react.

If you feel the urge to hibernate or detach for a while then go for it. It will be short lived and will only last as long as it’s need to find your land legs again.

A caution : Don’t wallow in it.

Fri 5th – Sun 7th : Poe’s Brave Flight

So after the time to reconnect with your own inner wisdom and taking some time out to adjust you may have the urge to do something you’ve been procrastinating about.

You may find that rather than talking yourself out of it you have a “sod it!” moment instead. Of deciding I’m going to try it this time.

Sometimes we stop ourselves through various forms of fear :
Possibly a fear of the unknown/change
Is it a fear of being mocked/judged by others
Or even fear of success

And it can be paralysing. Which is the whole point – so ask yourself where this fear stems from. Is it ACTUALLY yours or is it someone else’s voice in your head?

If you are really meant to be doing something it will offer itself up on multiple occasions – giving you the chance to go for it or decline it. Free will and all that.

Discernment is key here – if it feels right go for it, if it’s not quite right let it go for now. It will come back up if it’s for you.

If it feels right be brave, grasp it with both hands and take a leap of faith.

You may surprise yourself and other with just how high you can fly if you trust yourself.

Summary:

Start of the week : deep dive time into your own energy. Stripping away the story, the drama, the distractions to find out who you are at your core. Of revealing/remembering the wisdom and knowledge you already hold. Of realising you have a voice, you have your own power and standing in it.

Mid week : possibly some rest/time our to help your energies balance out. If you’ve been working hard or holding space for the collective you may need a bit of peace to find yourself again. Go with it. If you need to step back from things or people then do what is right for you. This is the deep breathe before the next stage.

End of the week : if you are feeling drawn to doing something that you really want to then go for it. It may be something that keeps coming up that you keep turning down through fear. Drill down to see where this fear stems from – do the needful and if it feels right take a leap of faith.
If it doesn’t feel right use the opportunity to work through the fear and let it release. Having a different perspective on things can reveal more than you might realise.

Oracle card reading 25th – 31st March 2019

Mon 25th – Tue 36th : Guidance

This card for me is all about the different places you can find guidance. Or the directions it can come from.
The main thing I’m being nudged to say is if you are seeking guidance to use your own powers of discernment to decide if it’s the right one for you or not.

It’s all too easy to listen to something, take it as gospel and then later down the road start to have your doubts. We’ve all been there. Pay attention to your gut reaction – if it feels off then step back, if it feels good then keep going.

Now to get a bit airy fairy (yes I can do it on occasion). Sometimes the absolute best guidance you will ever get comes from yourself. From within. From your own higher self. Try and not ignore or disregard it. Listen to it instead – see where it leads you.

Start to heed the small details in what is presented to you – it may be in repeating song lyrics, random things on your social media feed 3 times in a row, several people saying the same phrase or words in a short space of time. Whatever it is you need or are asking to see/hear it will be given to you in a way you can translate.

Be open to receiving however – it’s all to easy to ask for guidance on the surface but having zero inclination of taking it in. Do that too often and they stop coming through.

Wed 27th – Thur 28th : Elemental

I see a daffodil in this card and that for me is a sign to get outside and connect with nature. To spend time outside rather than cooped up in my office.

Taking some time out to get outside – even if just for 5 minutes – really does start to connect you to the bigger picture.

Of getting out of your head or the removing the blinkers you’ve placed on yourself. We can get so mired up in the day to day stiff that we can miss whats going on around us. Take some time for yourself – get back in touch with the seasons, see daylight.

Buy yourself that bunch of flowers, get a new house plant, work in the garden if you have one, feed the birds, go to the seaside or the local park/woods.

It’s all about lighten the load and remembering how to simply be instead of always doing.

Fri 29th – Sun 31st : Sacred Beetle Armour

Now this for me is more of a REMINDER that you you have energetic armour rather than an alert that you need it.

At times we find ourselves going through shifts and the processing can be painful or prolonged. During this time we can be a tad vulnerable as our energy system can be a bit open or out of sync.

If you find yourself in that space remember you have the ability to shield it while it integrates. It doesn’t have to be a big complicated thing and can be as simple as giving yourself some quiet time, resting. Of declining invitations and saying no to things if you really aren’t up to it.

Take care of yourself and know this armour or boundaries are part of your step towards self empowerment. They are always there so use them when you need to.

And yes on occasion this armour, shield or boundaries can be in the form of another person who can step in to help for a short while. Try not to take advantage or lean on them too hard – this is short term stuff only till you find your feet.

In fact YOU may even be that person for someone else.
Try not to become a martyr or overstep – short term only or you’ll burn out.

Summary:

Start of the week : guidance can come in all sorts of forms. What you need to see or hear will be in a form you can translate. Use your discernment for what comes to you – if it feels right pay then carry on, if it feels off then step back and sense check.

Mid week : if you can get outside and reconnect with nature. Be it a cuppa in the garden, buying a bunch of flowers for the home/office, going on a walk, getting down to the water…whatever it is take this time out for yourself. You’ll be able to relax and perhaps see or sense the bigger picture for a moment.

End of the week : a reminder that you have the ability to shield your energies when you need to. If you feel a little vulnerable, are processing or have been through a shift sometimes you can be or feel a little delicate or out of sorts. Look after yourself, as this is the first step in self empowerment. It is a choice but you have the tools to hand.

Oracle card reading 18th – 24th March 2019

Mon 18th – Tue 19th : The Faery Ring

Interesting one this as it shows the full potential of what is around you right now. So many choices, so many directions, so many ideas. So many you might get overwhelmed and do nothing.

The whole point of this one is to NOT do nothing. This is a reminder that change is constant. And to remain where you are can lead to stagnation, disempowerment, regret and resentment over time.

If you are guided to learn a new skill, start a course or even start to teach – do it.

Intrigued by a refresher on something you already do BUT brings in a fresh perspective or new ways – do it.

Fancy meeting new like minded people who let you be yourself and be at ease – do it.

If you are guided to work in a different way – do it.

Be brave and do the thing you’ve been thinking about, obsessing over or pondering . If you don’t do it now you never will and that would be a shame.

This is a potent time and offers up opportunities to purge what no longer serves to make way for the things that do. These new beginnings are part of using that created space.

Be brave and go for it.

Wed 20th – Thur 21st : Illumination

Now this is a very specific card to fall on 2 very big energy days.
On Wednesday we have Vernal (Spring) Equinox here in the northern hemisphere, followed on Thursday by the super full March moon.

Can you see the need to let go of the fears at the start of the week?
To make space. To let in light. The spring equinox is about welcoming the light back, and the super full moon reflects that light back to us – so this is not a random card.

If you have been asking for something you might be about to have a huge light shining on it giving you the answers you seek. Or even seeing the truth of what’s been going on. Rather than the face value stuff.

You may have been getting direct guidance from your higher self/team which you have been discounting as fancy or your imagination. Rather than discounting it try listening instead. You may surprise yourself.

If someone randomly gives you information or an “ah ha!” moment then pay attention. Even that will not be random. You were meant to see or hear it.

These are potent energies so what you ask for you may just get – a hell of a lot quicker and more direct than you may have anticipated!

Fri 22nd – Sun 24th : Mermaid in a Koi pond

This is a card thats been popping up time and again over the past few months. Both for the weekly readings and for personal ones. And this also falls on a big energy day. Fresh on the heels of equinox and full moon we have the start of Mercury completing it’s retrograde phase and starting to go direct on Friday.

Pretty big week wouldn’t you agree?

So if you’ve started something new, seen the light on something this is the natural progression to step into who you are and who you are about to become. All in the space of 3 days = although they can blend into the same space in all honesty.

Of sensing your own personal power and energy and owning it – not shying away from it or hiding under a bushel.

We all have our own talents and gifts and how we use and share them is unique as well. Your way of doing this is starting to make sense – or soon will be.

Embrace it.

You don’t have to follow a pattern set out by someone else, or a way of teaching as it’s “always been one that way” . It’s simply about interpretation. If you have a way that sits with you more comfortably then do it. Just because it differs to the others doesn’t make it wrong or right – simply right for you.

You may even find the support you need to step into yourself appears seemingly out of nowhere. In truth you’ve been asking and you;’e been heard.

Summary:

Big week all said or at least the potential is there.

Start of the week – you may find yourself surrounded by new people, new ideas, new views. If you feel drawn to starting something or tweaking something you already do then go for it. To do nothing leads to stagnation. If it doesn’t work so what – taking that step is the important lesson in this. Use this time to let go of the fears holding you back, shedding what no longer serves and seeing what comes up to take its place.

Mid week – very big energies with equinox and full moon next to each other. The understanding of a situation you have been asking for is there. The light is being shone on it very brightly. What you choose do with it is up to you.

End of the week – time to step into your own shoes and do things your way not the way others would have you do it. You are your own person and at ties that can get a bit lost. Work with the powerful energies of the previous days and the start of Mercury going direct on Friday. See the pattern of letting go, starting something new, seeing the light and being you. It’s powerful stuff if you choose to embrace it.

OMG Facebook crashed! And?

Well thats the £64K question isn’t it. Facebook crashed worldwide for a bit. So what?
Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp they all went down.
But seriously, so what?

“Huh?”

I mean really, so what if it crashed for 14 hours.
Was it the end of the world?
No.
Did life suddenly stop?
No.
Will I sound just a touch judgemental in these musings?
Perhaps but it’s for a reason, to challenge some perspectives. Hey that’s my role after all. And I’ll be honest I may swither about hitting publish on this one.

Curious one isn’t it.

I saw so many meltdowns brewing and then erupting. And some from VERY surprising directions. And a lot was full blown panic.

It is quite amusing when I look back at it but at the time I could feel myself getting wound up at the reactions.

Then I realised it wasn’t mine. Oh no this was the collective frustration at boiling point that I was reacting to.
It’s been glitchy for weeks if not the last month. I’ve seen and felt it so knew this was coming.
Not a huge shocker when eventually it dissolved in a puddle under it’s own weight. But for a lot of people apparently it was.

Ok, I get that.

Technology is fantastic when it’s working but an absolute bastard when it doesn’t. But it ISN’T the end of the world.

“But don’t you run a business via Facebook?”

Yes, I do. But that didn’t cause me any panic.
Why?

Because I view Facebook as a tool. Nothing more, nothing less. I refuse to give it more power than that.

It’s served me well for years because of this shift in my own perspective. It’s not the be all and end all for me. Yes it was a minor inconvenience. I realised something was up so went to Google, popped in “Facebook outage” and up it all came. I was able to take the time without distractions and concentrate on the website for a bit.

That was the whole point OF the website you see. My team asked the question a couple of years ago that if social media wasn’t there how would I communicate my message and my voice? I took it seriously and voila the website was born.
Yes it can be viewed as old school – but it works.

I knew it would be temporary, a day at least.

“How could you possibly know that?”

Think about it. If a bank website crashes you can bet your backside it’s up and running within hours. Why, because it’s bleeding out money by the second. That’s exactly what happened in this instance. There was no way the Facebook machine would allow a day of losing money.

Thats why I knew as soon as North America came back on line hey presto it would get fixed.

Call me a cynic if you wish but I was proved right.

So what’s the lesson in all of this?

There are a few I’ve been shown outright and a few that will bubble up over the next while.

The main one was our deep reliance and border line/full blown addiction to social media platforms.

When it was suddenly taken away the two sides of the coin were miles apart from each other.
One side either shrugged their shoulders and did something else, or didn’t even notice there was an issue.
The other side had a complete meltdown being cut off cold turkey.

I can see both sides of this, truly.

But I can also see the level of manipulation that’s taken things to this point. With the ability to think for yourself, to research and seek out information seemingly dissolved into the ether. We have become so used to having information regurgitated to us in a constant stream we’ve forgotten how to engage the old grey matter.

A case in point.
I had one very lovely customer who wanted to buy something from my sales group who couldn’t contact me through Facebook. So what did they do? Stopped for a second, went to an old invoice, found my email and sent me a message that way. All sorted within the space of a few minutes.

Simple, quick and painless.

If you take away the box you’ve put yourself into you can and will find other solutions.

“So are you stepping away from social media then?”

Unlikely but it has reminded me that having more than one avenue is no bad thing.
I’ll be looking into alternative platforms and building this site into something more than it is now.
To be more interactive, with the possibility of live webinars etc. Which I was in the process of doing before all this.

But it has also shown me the divide amongst the people I know and surround myself with.

I have to feel into this and decide a few things.

And that’s ok – that’s mine to take away and work with.

Best advice going forwards?

Next time social media is being unsociable do a bit of digging and don’t assume the worst. It’s likely to be a storm in a teacup.

Feeling a bit flat? Me too

Yes I’m feeling a bit flat too. Slightly uninspired, out of sorts and generally a bit meh.
I don’t know about you but I am absolutely exhausted this week. Not just from work but in general.

“What’s going on?”

It’s partly to do with the ever changing weather attempting to reset our natural clock. And by that I mean gaia’s attempt to bring the seasons back into alignment.

We’ve had some very unseasonal weather in the UK this last few weeks. So unseasonably warm that bumblebees and butterflies have been back, just that little bit too early. Many of us have come out of our hibernation a bit prematurely as well.

Queue some stormy winter weather to help us reset. She can be helpful in that way. Although it might not feel like it at the time!

“Ok I get the weather bit but there must be more”

You’d be right. We have some hefty energies playing about at the moment.

And this can be seen physically on the Schumman resonance, increased Auroras and more. Those sensitive to these things may be feeling either a bit drained or completely energised.

I’m the former

“Ok so what else??”

I can feel, just outside of my awareness, a big shift is coming.

I couldn’t tell you what or when only that’s what my gut is telling me. My team have gone quiet.
As can and does happen around this time. But I have noticed a change in the pattern in the work I’m being asked to do for others…and I’m taking it on board.

I can feel a subtle change in the way I work and I’m just sitting with that even as I type this – as sometimes simply putting the words down is enough for the process to start to make sense. Or it’s just me rambling again you choose

You are NOT alone.

For those who may be feeling fatigued, a bit tired or outright scunnered (good scots word that) it’s only temporary. Take the rest time you’re being nudged towards, find the creative spark that helps you recenter and just go with it.

We often get these quiet or down times to process, recalibrate and get ready for what’s to come.
No doubt what I’ve just written will make more sense for me when I look back in a while.

Just todays inner musings

Oracle card reading 11th – 17th March 2019

Oracle card reading 11th – 17th March 2019

Mon 11th – Tue 12th : Fire

Interesting to have fire pop up as for me this is all about newness – of building something new from the ashes of what you have let go. Of allowing new ideas to spring forth. Of going with the flow rather than fighting against it.

By opening up to the energy of fire you might be surprised how much can change and how much things can begin to flow. The three cards have a beautiful shared symmetry and sense of movement. And this feels to be the theme of the potential this week.

The potential to really go with the flow, see where things take you and not get stressed with changes to plans at the last minute. By being adaptable to changes or situations you get to see different aspects of things and people you may not have seen before. And it’s all good.

Be spontaneous, be a free spirit and work with the first energy. Burn away what no longer serves and use the ashes to build something new.

For some this may be a time to let that voice of yours be heard – to not bow down to others who force to you be silent or be silenced or behave in a way that works for them. Enough is enough – we all have a voice, we all have our own takes and views on things. And we can all let them be heard – if you don’t agree with someone fair enough. Agree to disagree and move on.

You don’t have to be aggressive or rude to be heard but your voice will carry if you give it power.

 

Wed 13th – Thur 14th : Renewal

Can you see the spiral in this card? It follows the first card again with that sense of movement.

For some this may be a time for some deep self care,. Of fully letting go of the things that have been holding you back. This is the cycle of shedding and re-growth.

Take a close look at the relationship that surround you. Do any feel wobbly, less than stable, stagnant? It may be time to address these and either repair, or walk away if it’s too far gone.

Some people come into our lives for a short period of time and then move on – we may that person ourself for someone else. So if it feels like it has run it’s course let it go. It’s best for all involved. As yes that CAN include family. If someone steps away from you allow them to do so. See this in both directions.

I can say with some confidence a new friendship/relationship/customer/opportunity will show itself if you take that brave step of shedding what’s not working.

Life isn’t a constant straight line it’s a spiral which while it has its ups and downs is still forward motion.

Flow with it.

 

Fri 15th – Sun 17th – Ancestors

Now the above isn’t the actual name of the card but ancestors sits with me more comfortably so I’m using that.

Again theres the circular flow and almost an infinity loop movement with this one. Which mirrors the other cards rather nicely – as does the colour. As all 3 sit with the red/orange/yellow spectrum. Those who work with colour or chakras may find this relates to grounding, self worth or self empowerment.

Towards of the end of the week this is linking in with ancient knowledge, ancestral links, the old ways.

You may feel a connection back to ancient teaching and learnings , or have a sudden sense of knowing something or having remembering something. You may be given a nudge to start sharing YOUR knowledge in some way.

This is all about connection rather than separation. Of reaching out, being part of the bigger picture and ADDING to the combined knowledge we hold.

In time we will be the ancient ones that people attempt to connect back to. And what we share now will enrich those to come.

 

Summary:

Start of the week – be spontaneous, say yes to the things that fire you up. Shed what feels stuck or stagnant. Be heard in your own way – you don’t have to scream and shout. You can if you wish but you will find what works for you. We all have a voice so use it. Go with the flow and see where it takes you.

Mid week – Take some time out for a bit of self care. Of renewal of the connections around you – if it feels off or not working take a step back or be brave and fully let go. Whatever you choose to release will make space for something new to come forwards.

End of the week – you may feel a pull to connect with ancient wisdom/energy of the ancestors. For some you may have knowledge or wisdom to share. The right way for you will make itself known. By sharing we enrich the collective knowledge which in time will become the ancients.
